soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
they would do it but i do think that you are hearing stories come out from reporters who were in boston on election night that mitt romney and his team were also very emotional and in a different way. but to a person, you hear stories that both barack obama and mitt romney, these are good men that wanted to do good things for this country and barack obama will have another four years to try to turn things around. >> van jones, i think the reason it struck a chord, i certainly felt genuinely moved by it, is you could certainly see the brutality of these campaigns, what it takes out of people. even barack obama, who has been president for four ice-cold years, suddenly got very emotional, sort of looking at people that were him 25 years ago, on the beginning of their political careers. perhaps one of them may be president one day. it was a pretty profound, in its own way, profound speech of just five minutes or so. >> yeah. well, you know, the ice man leaked. if you weren't moved by that, you have been in politics for too long. in some ways this whole campaign was sort of the return of the

at this school outside boston, an extreme example, was entirely legal. >> some day we are all going to look back and we're going to say, can you believe what we did here? >> reporter: an abc news investigation has found that only 17 states have specific laws protecting students from harsh treatments and restraints. >> that's there's thousands and thousands of children that have been traumatized, that have been injured. >> reporter: in arizona and washington state, parents are up in arms over padded isolation boxes or cells where students have been left for long stretches. in kentucky a mother found her autistic eight-year-old son had been stuffed into a duffel bag like this one, especially made to restrain children. >> they held me. >> reporter: in pennsylvania a group of students with behavioral issues described to abc news how they had been tied up or manhandled at previous schools. did it hurt? >> yeah. it really did hurt. >> reporter: jordan described being locked up in one of the isolation boxes? >> it's scary. really scary. even for the bravest person in the world, it's still really scary.
